    The Borrowers

    by Mary Norton and Beth & Joe Krush

    There aren’t many miniature people left in the world today! But the Borrowers quietly and secretly make their living borrowing from the "human beans" they live with. "The magic and charm of the writing convinces children and grown-ups, too, that the Borrowers really do exist."—SLJ

About This Book

The Borrowers--the Clock family: Homily, Pod, and their fourteen-year-old daughter, Arrietty, to be precise--are tiny people who live underneath the kitchen floor of an old English country manor. All their minuscule home furnishings, from postage stamp paintings to champagne cork chairs, are "borrowed" from the "human beans" who tromp around loudly above them. All is well until Pod is spotted upstairs by a human boy! Can the Clocks stay nested safely in their beloved hidden home, or will they be forced to flee? The British author Mary Norton won the Carnegie Medal for "The Borrowers" in 1952, the year it was first published in England. Don't miss the other classics in the Borrowers series: "The Borrowers Afield," "The Borrowers Afloat," "The Borrowers Aloft," and "The Borrowers Avenged."
